and also the president of the san francisco lasada lawyers association and i am here to petition that you reconsider your current proposal and provide the san francisco law library adequate space. and i think that it is very obvious given how many people turned out today that it is a tremendous amount of support that the san francisco law library has. i think that it is important to remember that the library is not just about rows and rows of books, it is about a space that foster as a community, a sense of community. and i have experienced that first hand. when i first started, my own practice, i was obviously lost when i was researching in order to figure out what particular issue i was seeking, and i have also seen countless numbers of individuals both attorneys and non-attorneys spend hours at the library sitting and researching you know with sacks of books and i think that space is really important, also given that the san francisco law library also hosts ncles which help all attorneys continue their legal education as well as hosting workshops, for example, on bankruptcy or on landl

an attorney for the san francisco public guardian and public administrator. there are five of us in our office and we are embedded in the office of the public guardian and public administrator which is under the department of aging and adult services. we represent the public guardian and public administrator in all court proceedings. and we don't have the funds in that agency, which is an agency that helps poor and homeless people and people who need help, we don't have the funds there to have a law library or to have practice books that we need to do our work. the law library and its connection of books, practice, books, and all of the collections help us to represent the public guardian and public administrator in taking care of the citizens of san francisco. i also feel that the public library enables people who can't afford access to the law, to be able to access the law. and they are not able to access it on an electronic method because we have to learn how to research law, electronically. and people can walk into that library and see a book and use a book which is the way that people kno

departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right.

the evidence in the earlier 1980s when the aids first hit san francisco and our country san francisco had to go it alone. the federal government was not a help and, in fact, as we recall the president, president reagan didn't utter the words until late 1980s and we in san francisco built a system of care so that we could take care of our own or the many people who suffered and suffered for many years with the disease the federal government started to support our efforts and the state that was incredibly helpful and we've seen over the years when we had a partner in providing care to people and phil protection strategies and we continued to be a leader and the rest of the world looks to san francisco for the models we've developed but but unfortunately, the craziness has gotten worse and worse and more short sighted over time we have seen significant reductions in support and particularly from the federal government in terms of ryan white and as well as cvc prevention care. new injections in san francisco continue to fall. we are winning the war on aids in san francisco but those cuts from the f

. their anniversary and in the 10 years it's once again returned to its grandeur of the city of san francisco. i wanted to take the opportunity to just walk us back a little bit through what we have done. as you know the ferry building was originally conceived now, well over a hundred years ago, it replaced a building that was for all intents and purposes was more like a barn structure, back in the early 1890s they determined it need repairs. the methodology for the piles themselves and the tower which is 245 feet tall and it was tallest at it's time. the building finally opened in 1903 and in 1906 we had the earthquake and everything survived except the clock stopped. if you look back in the records through 1907 there was a robust debate as to whether or not to fix the clock and we d unfortunately in the 1960s the embarcadero freeway was built. it lost a lot of it's vibrancy and stature to the city. it eventually came down and the public at that time determined that the rehabilitation and renovation of the ferry building was the port commission's highest priority and at that point in time the
